50 Men And Women On The Magical Moment They Realized They Were Not Actually Straight

These men and women from Ask Reddit are sharing the moment they discovered their sexuality.

11. When I was in seventh grade, I was at a dance with a friend. I had managed to convince her to go with me as my “friend date” and her boyfriend at the time invited himself along. I was RIDICULOUSLY jealous. She wouldn’t dance with me because her boyfriend instead wanted to pin her to the wall and make out with her and I had the thought that “I could treat her better than this. If I were her boyfriend, I would respect her and I’d kiss her like I love her, not like I want something from her. She’s so pretty, i wish I were her- waaaait.”

And then I cried for the next two hours because i was a Christian and thought I was going to hell.

12. A girl I (unknowingly) had a crush on started talking to me and I could barely respond. Like, I couldn’t put a sentence together, because oh my god she’s so beautiful and she’s acknowledging me. She left thinking I was an idiot, I left with the realization that maybe I wasn’t as straight as I had thought.

To be fair, I suspected I wasn’t straight before this, but this moment was when it really clicked.
